changing jEdit colors

Posted by SpiceWare, in jEdit 30 September 2014 · 3,715 views

I don't care at all for the default colors used by jEdit:

 
The main thing I don't like is how the white background overpowers the colors.  So I change it to black by doing the following:
​Select Utilities menu
Select Global Options... menu option
In the jEdit section select Text Area
Change the Text color from black to white
C...


Compile and Run 2600 assembly code from jEdit

Posted by SpiceWare, in jEdit 29 September 2014 · 1,673 views

In this blog entry we'll be making the changes to compile and run your 2600 program from jEdit.  You must have already followed the steps in Add a console to jEdit for this to work.

You must also have already installed the 6502 mode file and updated the catalog file.  The current 6502 mode file can be found in this blog entry .


For this we...


Add a console to jEdit

Posted by SpiceWare, in ColecoVision, jEdit, batari BASIC 29 September 2014 · 1,234 views

As I mentioned last night, due to some prodding by iesposta I finally took the time to figure out how to use jEdit to Compile and Run 2600 assembly code.  Now that I have it working, I really wish I'd done this years ago :roll:  I've also worked out how to do the same for ColecoVision assembly programs and will look into batari BASIC as well....

Posted by SpiceWare, in batari BASIC, jEdit 28 September 2014 · 1,222 views

DPC+ registers have been added to the assembly-6502.xml mode file for 2600 development.
 
The zero and hex problems have been fixed and DPC+ registers have been added to the batari BASIC.xml mode file.
 
See the prior blog entry for how to add the mode files.  The assembly entry for the catalog file is:

Updated batari BASIC mode file

Posted by SpiceWare, in batari BASIC, jEdit 27 September 2014 · 1,056 views

I like to use jEdit when I'm coding my 2600 games.  Back in June I revised my mode file, the syntax coloration rules, to make it easier to see graphic images that are represented by binary numbers.  I finally got around to implementing this change for my batari BASIC mode file. This is what it looks like:

Note: Color choices are under your c...


Updated MODE file

Posted by SpiceWare, in jEdit 26 June 2014 · 1,471 views

No update for Collect today - I got sidetracked trying to figure out how to use the "DELEGATE" feature of jEdit 's mode files.   Once I figured that out I was able to revise my mode file so that binary numbers will now show the 0 and 1 digits using different colors.  This makes it easier to see graphic shapes in the data:

Frantic reboot?!?

Posted by SpiceWare, in jEdit, Frantic 06 March 2012 · 1,879 views

I was reviewing the source for Frantic this weekend and while I was going over the time-critical kernel loop:

KernelLoop: ; 70
lda #<DS_COLUP0 ; 2 72
sta WSYNC
KernelLoopNoWSYNC:
beq RepositionP0 ; 2 2
sta COLUP0 ; 3 5 - before 25
lda #<DS_COLUP1 ; 2 7
beq RepositionP1 ; 2 9
sta COLUP1 ; 3 12 - before 25
stx ENAM0 ; 3 15...


Controller demo

Posted by SpiceWare, in jEdit, ColecoVision 19 February 2012 · 1,878 views

I've thrown together a test program that reads the ColecoVision's controllers and updates the display to show the input. Left controller works fine, but I'm getting odd results for the right-controller. It's different for both emulators I'm using: in Mugrat (screenshots) the left controller input is also the right controller input,...


ColecoVision Diversion

Posted by SpiceWare, in jEdit, ColecoVision 16 February 2012 · 2,580 views

Due to RL, I wasn't able to finish Chun-Li in time so it's been placed onto the back burner. I also got a little burnt out on Atari projects, so Frantic has joined it for a bit.

I recently acquired a ColecoVision (CV) and have decided to spend some time getting to know it...


jEdit files for batari BASIC

Posted by SpiceWare, in batari BASIC, jEdit 15 July 2006 · 1,630 views

Here's my mode file for jEdit for batari BASIC:


To use the syntax highlighting, put the batari BASIC.xml file in the MODES directory of jEdit. Then edit the catalog file in the same directory and add the...
